The Psychonomic Society invites proposals to fund a collaborative symposium between the Psychonomic Society and the European Society for Cognitive Psychology (ESCoP) to be held in Potsdam, Germany as part of the 20th meeting of ESCoP from September 3-6, 2017.

This program, created in 2015, is an initiative of the Psychonomic Society's international outreach as set forth in the Society's strategic plan. The program aims to strengthen the communication and collaboration between the Society and other international societies representing the field of experimental and cognitive psychology through an annual, jointly organized, cutting-edge topical symposium held at the other international societies’ regular annual meetings. One international society will be chosen each year for this program.

The organizer will receive up to $5,000 for expenses relating to the Psychonomic Society symposium at the conference. The budget will be decided by the organizer.
